That's what the Droid 2 did.

The Droid 2 was 1GHz instead of 500MHz with faster memory than the original Droid.

But it made no difference. The original Droid sales had dropped off dramatically by last summer. The Droid 2 launch last August barely made a ripple because the Droid X was released at the same time.

Reviewers have cited the smaller 3.7" screen as the reason it did so poorly against the 4.3" Droid X. Stores could not keep the Droid X in stock and could not get people to take the Droid 2 instead.

Similarly, Sprint stores could not keep the 4.3" EVO in stock and could not get people to take the 4.0" Epic instead.
